Storyline

The gangster Bulla (Mukesh Rishi) becomes the crime lord of Mumbai after killing his rival Lamboo Aata (Ishrat Ali). However, when his right hand man Kala Shetty (Rami Reddy) is arrested by police due to the intervention of a coolie and a good samaritan Shankar (Mithun Chakraborty), Bulla swears revenge. He manages to trap Shankar's sister Geeta (Sapna) into a sham marriage with Gulshan (Gulshan Rana) who is a scamster working for the pimp Lucky Chikna (Razak Khan). Bulla's younger brother Chutiya (Shakti Kapoor), who has long been impotent, becomes sex-crazed under the influence of London-imported pills provided by his loving elder brother and proceeds to brutally rape Geeta and ends up killing her. When Shankar's policeman father is also killed by the corrupt Inspector Kale (Rana Jung Bahadur), Shankar swears that he will kill Bulla, Chutiya, their ally Potey (Mohan Joshi) and the rest of their entourage within ten days.

A work of art.
21 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mihun's tryst with greatness. The defining moment of Indian Cinema. This movie is a must watch for anyone who speaks Hindi. More inspiring than Shawshank, with the thrill of Die Hard. Mithun manages to pack another powerful performance, only this time it is impossible to avoid rolling on the floor. And the dialogues, well, they will go down in history as adages. Need i say more? Watch Gunda, or face the wrath of Bulla.

People make movies to earn movie, educate, or express their views. But how many times is a movie made with the sole purpose of making you laugh till you puke your guts out? When was the last time somebody died on the screen, and you could not resist laughing so hard your lungs hurt? Gunda, more than a masterpiece of Mithun, will be remembered for its immortal villains- Hatela, Chutiya, Bulla. A legend, Gunda will stay in your memory till your moment of reckoning.
